To determine the receiver size you have, I have included a link to an FAQ that will help.

The Reese 2-1/2 inch Titan ball mounts like # RP45323 or the one found in # EBMK25318, tend not to fit the factory 2-1/2 inch receivers on Ford Super Duty trucks. You will need to use one of the Convert-A-Ball ball mounts.

We have # AMSCV-6 with a 6 inch drop or 4-3/4 inch rise. We also have # AMSCV-4 with a 4 inch drop or 2-3/4 inch rise. And then we have # AMSCV-2 with a 2 inch drop or 3/4 inch rise. All of these are rated for 18,000 pounds gross trailer weight and 2,000 pounds tongue weight.

If you have a 2 inch receiver then you can use any ball mount for a 2 inch receiver like # 40330 that is rated for 16,000 pounds gross trailer weight and 1,600 pounds tongue weight.
